Racing May 20 & 21
Long straights and high-speed cornering renders this racecourse a challenging rarity, and its history makes the Lone Pine Time Trials a California racing legend. Are you coming?
The 47th-annual Lone Pine Time Trials (LPTT) is almost here. Set for the weekend of May 20 and 21, this historic race, held without interruption since 1970 at central California’s legendary Manzanar Airport, is once again positioned to put a broad collection of road-racers and canyon carvers in a summer racing mood.
Come for the race, stay for the history. Set in classic high-mountain California, in the shadow of Mt. Whitney and just south of the Mammoth Mountain area and Bishop, CA, this long, high-speed racing surface is cut into the prewar Manzanar Airport complex, and provides second, third and fourth-gear time-trialing that short-course cone-chasers crave. The track will keep close to the classic layout, with no new track features planned: approximately 2.2 miles from start to finish, the fastest cars complete a lap in just shy of two minutes, averaging over 70mph.
